We were celebrating a birthday -- and had a lovely time. We ordered the short ribs, halibut and scallops. The service was good, the wine was delicious, and we were very pleased. We'll be back. oh and the creme brulee is made in-house and it was delicious.

We occasionally enjoy going the the Dilworthtown Inn. It is one of the top restaurants in our area. The food is very well prepared and the service is excellent. It is an great restaurant for a special celebration, birthday, holiday, etc.

As many reviews have stated, the food is very good but the service is beyond bad. We had great experiences at the wine dinners in the kitchen across the road from the main restaurant. Therefore we decided to celebrate our anniversary in the main restaurant in spite of some of the poor reviews. We arrived early and had a drink... More

Went for anniversary a while back. High end restaurant for special occasion with nice surrounding grounds and nice privacy tables; however, menu is limited, plates are small and price expensive. Food and service were good. Nice place for the right occasion, but it will cost you and you may still be hungry after.

We went to the Dilworthtown for our anniversary recently. We have not been in a few years (probably on another anniversary!), and I checked the TripAdvisor reviews. I was somewhat nervous by all the recent negative reviews about the service and the food. I am happy to say that we did not have the same experience. The waiter was attentive,... More

We had a 7:00 reservation for 6 people, were seated in a private room with inadequate lighting, he to ask for the waitress after 2 minutes so we could get a drink. After ordering, our salads and soups were brought... More

I have dined here more that a hundred times over the past 20 years. The service and food had declined over the years. Cannot believe in the lack of beer choices. Recent dining with about 15 guests- one older waiter could not get orders correct. Please get back the old employees that had made the place good.

Long time area standby for first class dining, special occasions or when you need to make serious amends! Sited in a semi and authentically restored 18th century colonial inn that maintains an aire of Williamsburg formaility without being stuffy. Menu changes frequently and always has seasonal and locally produced offering. Competent wine list. Attentive and professional service. Eaten here many... More
